Please note that we are currently not accepting scantron jobs until the University re-opens due to the COVID-19 situation. Thank you for your cooperation.
- Answer sheets are processed within three business days.
- Original answer sheets are returned to the instructor.
- Corrupted answer sheets (that is, sheets that will not go through the scanner) are identified for the instructor by a note attached to the sheets when they are returned.
- Instructors can change a test’s correct answers and their mark values online without re-scanning the answer sheets.
- Instructors can grade the tests online and generate reports. They can also create data files for importing the grades into the University’s course management system (D2L) or gradebook (WinMarks).
- Note: The test scoring system does not archive results from previous semesters. After Test Scoring results have been returned to the requesting department, the department is responsible for maintaining its own archive of test scoring results from previous semesters.
- New ID policy: As of January 2020, anyone who is picking up an exam must bring valid photo ID (eg. Student/Staff/Faculty card, driver's license). This is to ensure only authorized individuals are able to pick up an exam for a course instructor.
